We all have them................
As a child I was always told don't tell anyone about your dreams until after breakfast....
or they are more than likely to come true. I have always been a very vivid dreamer.
If I am to be truthful, often things I dream about to come to life in some shape or form.
Today you will learn several things about me:
First and foremost you will understand why this blog is called
My Mind's Eye....my mind does have an eye like no one else.
1.I am NOT artistic AT ALL
2. I have very life like dreams, my family and friends often say
if you dream about me keep it to yourself. Which I normally do
but sometimes dreams are just too funny and must be shared.
3. I dream in color
4. Most of all I love to poke fun at myself, laughter is the best medicine
Last night I had the most hilarious dream I have ever had.
I wish you could have heard my dear sweet hubby LOL at my dream and then my drawing.
He can actually draw but since it was my dream and it was funny I decided to draw.
My dear friend of 56 years was the subject of my dream.
After breakfast this morning, I sent her to tell her I had a hilarious dream about her
and to check her email for the dream description and a crude drawing.
The Dream as I remember which I did not tell my husband until after breakfast.
I was at her home when she came walking into the kitchen.
She was wearing a shoulder harness which had compartments that held
nearly every cleaning tool or detergent you can imagine. However,
I saw a few very vividly and in color. I have no idea why anyone would have
Q-tips (which I saw in color), as part of a cleaning harness.
I saw a mop, a broom, and on one side was a very long
compartment that held furnace filters. I could see the filter sizes written vertically on
the edge of the filters but could not make them out.
The odd thing about her kitchen was her fridge was missing. Maybe she stores this shoulder harness where the fridge use to be...who knows.
Below you will find a very very crude drawing of the dream (furnace is misspelled but
I wasn't going to draw this again)!
I'm sure a mental health professional would have a ball analyzing this dream.
If you are one please take a stab at it but in the meantime this is my analysis.
I thought about this dream for a long time and the meaning.
Here are my thoughts:
1. Cleaning Harness:
We visit them every summer and refer to there home as a Bed and Breakfast
Maybe in my mind's eye this is how I see her as she prepares her spotless home for our
The stray cat they rescued 2 years ago, Charlie, recently had an ear infection.
They were having to administer ear drops.
3. Missing Fridge
Recently they replaced their original fridge with a huge new fridge.
4. Furnace Filters:
Last week I had an email from her saying she hoped the temps didn't drop too quickly.
Their furnace always made more dust in the house than the a/c and she wanted to
have the vents cleaned before they turned on the heat
The question now is why did all these individual events come up in one dream?
Do you dream vividly, do you dream in color, do you have an superstitions about telling or not telling dreams....
In My Mind's Eye..... I will never forget all the wonderful memories and students I met while working at N C State University for 25 ...
